Acting Lass (7/2), Tintern Theatre (5/1), Master Dee (8/1), Theatre Territory (10/1), Art Mauresque (10/1), Josses Hill (12/1), Ballykan (14/1), Label Des Obeaux (14/1), Go Conquer (16/1), Monbeg Charmer (16/1), As De Mee (20/1), Loose Chips (20/1), Theatre Guide (20/1), Relentless Dreamer (33/1), Vibrato Valtat (33/1)

Verdict

A decent renewal of this valuable race and one that can go to ACTING LASS, who is seriously progressive over fences and can cope with another rise in the weights. There is little to choose between stable companions Art Mauresque and As De Mee, but Tintern Theatre is much preferred to his stable's other representative Ballykan now that he is back on a more suitable surface. Theatre Guide boasts a fine record in this race and can go well despite top weight, while Master Dee and Theatre Territory are others to consider as they step up in trip.
